Storyline

In England in the 1920s, Emily, a maturing daughter of a once wealthy family arrives at their family estate to visit her mother for a couple of days. She wants to lose her virginity and there's more than enough opportunity for that. Her attractive lonely older mother is having a secret sexual relationship with a smug lusty older rich man who pays for her debts in return. He has his eye on Emily too. Their next door neighbor is a beautiful married middle-aged artist who offers Emily to pose for her. Emily is intrigued by the woman and a mutual erotic seduction between the two begins. However, in Emily's mind this is just a friendly exploration between two girls and doesn't count as losing one's virginity. Another candidate for that task is a young adventurous American about the same age as her who's visiting the old country. The maid has a lover as well, a soldier, who also wouldn't mind helping Emily with her quest. She eventually realizes how much lust these people hide in them and ... Written by Anonymous

A total disappointment
23 July 2005 | by amjad_qureshiSee all my reviews

I saw the movie when i was a teen ager and found it interesting only because Koo Stark, who at that time was in close contention with the Royal family, was exposed in it. I recently watched it again and was more disappointed. The movie is horribly directed and acted all through.It contains unbelievable scene sequence and the story is so unrealistic that it starts to bore after fifteen minutes. I wonder whether there is any connection of the plot with the writing of the legend Marquis de Sade. Everyone in the movie seem to be obsessed with one and only one feeling, and that is sex. The major sex scene at the end of the movie is also unerotic and boring. Don't watch this movie even if u r a fan of Koo Stark.
